Triple Tiered Estate Fountains, Classical Three Tiered Fountains and Contemporary Tiered fountains. Whether a gentle trickle, or a powerful cascade, the sound of running water has either a soothing or an invigorating effect on its listeners. The tiered fountain has earned its place in classic fountain styling - for both visual and audible reasons - whether formal and traditional, or casual and contemporary. The composition of order and balance due to the dimensional graduation from one dish to the next in a vertical alignment is very pleasing. Water spilling in curtains from one level to that below is a visual delight.
